Walk The Walk Lyrics

song performed by Poe in the album Haunted

Send Walk The Walk Ringtone to your Cell

My mother spent ten years sitting by a window
Scared if she spoke, she would die of a heart attack
She listened as her dreams silently screamed
They drowned like little dolphins caught in a fishnet
Dear world, I'm pleased to meet you

Hey, everybody, when you walk the walk
You gotta back it all up you, can you talk the talk?
Hey, everybody when I hear the knock
Don't wanna measure out my life to the tick of a clock?

Hey, everybody when my daddy died
He had a sad, sad story livin' in his eyes
Hey, everybody when you walk the walk
You cannot measure out your life to the tick of a clock

I wanna walk of my own drum
I wanna walk to the beat of my own drum
Walk to the beat of my own drum
I wanna walk to the beat of my own drum

Hey, everybody, when you walk the walk
You gotta back it all up but can you talk the talk?
Hey, everybody, when I hear the knock
Don't wanna measure out my life to the tick of a clock
Hey, every, hey, everybody

I wanna walk to the beat of my own drums
I wanna walk to the beat of my own drums
Walk to the beat of my own drums
I wanna walk to the beat of my own drums, hey

Walk to the beat of my own drum
I wanna live to the beat of my own drum
I wanna laugh to the beat of my own drum

I wanna hang ten high, say pleased to meet you
Take to the beat of my own drum
I wanna give to the beat of my own drum
Fly, cry, win, lose, live, die, take five
Pleased to meet you

My Daddy spent ten years living on the outside, looking in
He thought that he would never get back, hey, get back
Watched his dream walk across a silver screen

And he was standing there
When the theater went pitch black
Dear world I'm pleased to meet you

Hey, everybody when I walk the walk
I gotta back it all up, can I talk the talk?
Hey, everybody, when I hear the knock
Don't wanna measure out my life to the tick of a clock

Hey, every, hey every, hey every, hey everybody
Can you walk the walk?

I wanna walk to the beat of my own drums
I wanna walk to the beat of my own drums
Walk to the beat of my own drums
I wanna walk to the beat of my own drums, hey

Play to the beat of my own drum
I wanna sing to the beat of my own drum
I wanna play to the beat of my own drum
I wanna hang ten high, say pleased to meet you

Screw up to the beat of my own drum
I wanna take it out of town and do it to my drum

Scream shout, hide out, win, lose
Wipe out, saunter down my street
Make love to my baby
Make love to my baby

It's a wonderful idea, but it doesn't work
My own drum, my own beat
MY own drum, my own, own, own, own

Hey, did you ever get the feeling that it's really a joke?
You think you've got it figured out
And then you find that you don't?
So you say goodbye to the world
And now you're floating in space?

You got no sense of nothing not even a time or a place?
Then suddenly you hear it, it's the beat of your heart
And for the first time in your life
You know your life is about to start?
Oh, yeah, bring it on

Hey, everybody, hey, everybody
Hey, everybody when you walk the walk
You gotta back it all, back it all, back it all, back it all up

I wanna walk to the beat of my own drum
I wanna walk to the beat of my own drum
I wanna walk to the beat of my own drum

There's someone knocking in the wall
Was it like an echo?
